Sony Sees 'Stalemate' in High-def Format War

The head of Sony, Howard Stringer, said Thursday that the Blu-ray disc format is in a "stalemate" with the competing HD DVD format.

"It's a difficult fight," said Stringer, speaking at the 92nd Street Y cultural center in Manhattan, AP reports.

Stringer also commented on the Paramount's recent decision to drop most of its support for Blu-ray and put out high-definition movies exclusively on HD DVD.

"We were trying to win on the merits, which we were doing for a while, until Paramount changed sides," Stringer said.

At the same time, he played down the importance of the battle, saying it was mostly a matter of prestige whose format wins out in the end.

"It doesn't mean as much as all that," Stringer said. He added that he believed there was an opportunity of uniting the two camps under one format before he became CEO, and he wishes he could travel back in time to make that happen.

Toshiba has been selling its players for as low as $200 heading into the holiday season, while Blu-ray players cost more than twice as much.

Stringer also said the PS3 console is the best-selling console in Europe after a price cut three weeks ago. In the U.S., a recent price cut has doubled sales.

"We are coming back up again," Stringer said. The company aims to sell 10 million PS3s by the end of its fiscal year in March. Until now, Nintendo has sold 13.2 million Wiis.
